BTRFS plugin will be available?

  • Hi, i would know if is planned a BTRFS plugin to have some tools like:
    snapshots management, native raid, array expansion... maybe replication or restoring tools to handle disk or FS fails


    directly on WebGUI, like ZFS have (i don't tested yet, so i don't know what tipe of tools inside zfs one, i just imagined)


    is it possible to see in the near future or just in my dream? :whistling:

  • I don't know of any plans for more btrfs support than is already in the web interface. The fact that raid5/6 on btrfs isn't production ready doesn't help anything.

  • ok, i understand the stalemate situation of raid5/6 is a big big problem to move the entire project to a business level, but i think there is a fat amount of OMV users which want only to store data in a simple way, like raid1 or 10


    for what i've read until now Btrfs raid5/6 is not done yet, but will be in the future (or is in dubt this point?) so a easy management mask could be a big deal even now with raid1/10 setups


    my 2 cents

  • Bal000, there is very easy to create and manage btrfs pools with cli. The only stumble point is subvolume and backup using subvolume replication and I am not sure that omv has those options for zfs either.
    If you want full btrfs support you might look into rockstore.

    I agree there should be a plugin but who is going to write it? I know I don't have time (or the btrfs experience) and all the btrfs I use are in the web interface already.
